This book was an exhilarating ride and suspenseful journey. I didn't expect what I received from this installment. I was absolutely thrilled by the direction this story took.

Sara was confused for the most part. The people who surrounded her didn't help with clarification. It was one of those instances where people are not always who they seem. She had to play Nancy Drew just to garner little nuggets of information. These people sure like to play their cards close to their chests. I felt bad that she was tormenting herself for so long over her "devastating secret". I hate when victims are made to feel blame and/or shame. All it does is further the victimization. I hope we get to see her overcome these feelings and start seeing herself as a survivor.

Chris seemed to have way too many secrets. This only made him HOTTER!! I can tell that what's been revealed is only the tip of the iceberg. Somehow though, I get the feeling that he's been a victim as well and is playing the blame/shame game too. I guess the next installment will show me if I'm correct in my assessment. Regardless, I love Chris. I love his dominance, his power, his altruism, his talent, his humour, his possessiveness, and overall, the way he loved Sara.

Mark definitely deserves a book of his own. He seemed amazingly complex. I can only guess at what makes up his layers. I didn't see him as the villain per se, but he's no hero lol. I think he could be a good man, but I think something or someone has prevented him from being one.

I'm just thankful that what really happened with Rebecca was revealed. I can't say that I'm shocked.

On to book three to find out what's in store for Chris and Sara.

Thanks Sue! It's a pretty long series so I can see how that could happen while waiting for the next one. I'm lucky to have started after it was all done. xx
